    In case anyone hasn't heard, Schumi is in a coma and suffering from a life threatening head injury he got while skiing.

    I know I am far from alone in hoping he pulls through this.

    According to the Bleacher Report he's showing slight improvement after his second surgery. I hope he pulls through fine!

    Even if he wakes up there is still danger that his memory or brain functions in general might be severely affected.
    I hope that he wins these next two fights, one with the coma and returning back to normal which will be equally hard...

    I started watching F1. May God be with you....

    The man survived from years of racing incredibly fast vehicles and he ends up fighting for his life in a skiing accident? Ski is dangerous, especially in red and black slopes, but it's just not right! Hope he pulls through it!

    Schumy is apparently showing some signs of awakening

    Sorry for the french link, but its hard to find an english article with a french browser...

    Now, as a french-canadian, I must say that I hate him as a F1 driver (mostly for his attempt on Villeneuve in '97 during the last race) but I honestly hopes that he'll recover from that.

    I'm sure he will never be exactly the same, but I think everyone can agree it's just great that's he's alive and awake.

    Well, let's see how this develops. If he becomes a "vegtable" I don't think it's great at all that he is "alive". Death would be more worthy in that case.

    But let's hope he will recover well. This is really tragic.

    And it also shows how safe Formula One is compared to alpine sports. You only have a patethic little helmet that protect you, what good does it make, not much.

    I'm not too optimistic in this case, he's been in coma for too long I think. But let's hope for a miracle.

    I'll maintain optimism.
